Flight and the Justice's Ambition
As the citizens riot, Sariphi, Bennu, and Cy get Leonhart away and they take shelter in the crystal cave. Set explains to Anubis that Leonhart is a bastard child of the previous king and a human, while he is the son of the king and an official concubine, meaning he has royal blood. Set becomes the acting king and immediately orders the various beast races segregated with the non-mammalian races persecuted. Jormungand is arrested for remaining loyal to Leonhart, but Amit helps him escape and they go on the run. While looking for food, Sariphi saves an amphibian child from being beaten by guards, then Clops and Lante arrive and defeat them. As Lante fills her in, she realizes she left the diary behind and proposes retrieving it to prove Leonhart is legitimate. Leonhart has given up hope and wants to run away to Yoana, but Sariphi reprimands him and restores his courage. Jormungand tells Amit he owes Leonhart for accepting him despite anti-reptilian prejudice. They find the others and make a plan. Leonhart and Jormungand will distract the guards and Set while Sariphi, Lante, and Bennu retrieve the diary. The two attack the guards while Set thinks Leonhart is insane to come back while still in human form.
